Roxy Bar + Screen: Suffragette + Dinner
A hero of a film and a hell of a meal
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market - think homemade burgers and perfectly cooked steaks - it's a step up from your everyday multiplex outing. For this screening, catch Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep stick two fingers up to the patriarchy in Suffragette. The film follows the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement – women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. Featuring head-turning performances from a stellar cast and a moving storyline, this is an excellent depiction of an important story that deserves to be heard.
